Today I made a testing pant
- very light fabric, very very cheap fabric
to test how to adjust the pattern
to hide a slightly proeminent stomach

They look great Christina Really good fit . I'm also considering taking the leap to making pants..... soon I think I might start with a pair of jeans though, since that is what I like to wear the most.

This pants are the "muslin no. 2" - to fit the abdomen and the front and back rise

The first muslin was a pant pattern for which I measured on the pattern - only the waist and the hip

Next muslin is to fit the thigh and the ouside seam at the hip

I'm working to balance the lines so the same pant can be used to fit two close sizes
a tight fit for the smaller size - no significant ease around the hips
and a lejer fit for biger size - to justify 2 inch in ease around the hips
but the lines have to be very well balanced
which is easy
when using the tools in Pattern Editor

Cristina, I noticed the back of the pants have some drag lines to the knees. this is exactly what happens to me. I don't know what causes it or if it can be fixed at all. I wonder if the outside seam needs to be longer or if you pulled the side down if it would go away. I find it very hard to fit the back of my pants.

Maybe someone else has an idea.

Yes, the sideseam drop needs to be less. I did this with my pants pattern to remove the drag.

I fixed many aspects
in the next pant muslin
displayed in the post Final Test Pant.

When starting to create the test pant
I started with the pattern for a biger size than mine
because some of my body parts are more proeminent than my normal size
and this made it easier to fit
because always modifying some parts of the pant by taking out is much easier than adding in.

I plan to buy a good fabric
to apply on the final pattern.

Your suggestions are very welcome.

Previous pictures were from muslin no.2
Here I attach 2 pictures from muslin no. 3
where there are no more back wrinkles in knee area
after I narrowed the pattern at the back inseam.

Also I show a picture to display the proeminent areas
that my pattern had to somehow "hide"
to get in fact
what we all want from our patterns : a flattering aspect

It's a normal question: why 3 test muslin pants
to get to a fitted pant?

Because my first one
was too small over my tummy and derriere crotch.

So muslin number 2 was made in a bigger size
and it was easy just to adjust for the tummy and derriere
from a biger size to my size.

I also modified the thigh
rechecking the balance and the coaxial aspect of the whole pant.

Even after the third muslin I broght some 0.1-0.2" adjustments to the final pattern
to prepare it for grading.
I chose to increase the waist and hip between sizes with 1 1/8 inch
for more precision when selecting a size or another.
Also such a small difference between a size and the next
will allow a person to chose a biger size when using a thick fabric
or wanting more confort
and also
the same person can chose a smaller size when using a lighter fabric
or strech fabric.

The New Threads looks "busy" for some hours now
and this makes it difficult to get replies "right in time"
except one has to go though all the threads straight to Finished Projects
for a dialog.

This evening I cut the fabric pieces for the pant.
so tommorrow I will sew the new jeans
and ask my daughter to take a few pictures
so we all could see the results
and express opinions and new ideas

These are wild cut style pants
made of jeans fabric
casual use, in the car, shopping, garden work,
very confortable when staying all day in front of the computer.
This confort is given by the wild cut
and one the draw back
is that you have to use 30% more fabric than a normal cut
so you can not find it as "Made in ..."
rather be custom made.
